Summary: Personal Experience This projector produces some of the best quality images/video I have ever seen. Also the image is adjustable and customizable with many adjustments and features like lens shift, zoom etc. The only small negative I think is lack of keystone correction feature or options. I know you don't need that with a projector that has lens shift feature, but it would have saved a lot of time if they provided that facility.
Summary: This is a fantastic home theater projector. We have had it for 2 years and use it for movies, directv and video gaming. We have a dedicated room with 1 large window which has a shade that pulls down. Opposite the window, we have a 3/4 wall with openings (shades available) in order to watch while eating or playing billiards. The picture is amazing and even with the 3/4 wall open and recessed lighting on in the adjoining room the picture is great.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall it is a very good projector. Very happy with it. Nice picture quality and detail. This is my second projector. After using it for two year now I have started to notice some imperfactions. As mnay have noticed leakage of light from the vents and colour are not as sharp. Problems Now I have noticed that occasionally, I see heat signatures being projected on the screen.
Summary: I purchased this unit and instantly it blew me away!!! You can place this projector 10' feet away from a screen or wall and get 90" minimum viewing.It goes up to 300" and doesnt lose anything. The Sharp picture details and lively colors are just some of the added bonuses. Wow a movie Theatre in your own home, or in your backyard at night with friends over. Hook it up to your favorite game system...any way you use it you will be happy with this one.
Summary: I have owned this for 1 year. I read a negative review and thought I would share my thoughts. The projector is really cool. Nothing beats an 8 foot movie screen 10 feet from your face and the HD image this thing pumps out is every bit as good as a TV, but just not as bright, as you should expect. This PJ is incredibly quiet for the image it projects. In order to find something that runs more silent you have spend at least 3 times as much money.
Summary: Personal Experience The Value for Money (1500â‚¬ on Internet) is excellent. I bought in September and works for 250h without any problem. The image depends of the source, for example Blu-Ray disks "Die-Hard 4" or "Phantom of the Opera" have very good image. The DVD "Gladiator" is another one. I'm very satisfied with this projector.
Summary: Personal Experience This projector has excellent picture quality for the price. No, the picture is not perfect, but it's as good or better than anything I've seen under $5k when properly set up. Most of the complaints I have seen regarding this projector have to do with the operator not understanding how to set up the projector.
Summary: Personal Experience The projector is excellent. It meets all my expectations of what a 1080p projector should be. In my light controlled room it presents a stunning picture for movies and video games. I would not recommend this projector for a room with a lot of ambient light. It's brightness is excellent for a dedicated theater room but not for an upstairs living room with lots of windows.
Summary: Personal Experience Just got the Z2000 as a replacement for my ailing Z2. Have only had it a week, so this is a preliminary report. Obviously, the 2000 is a quantum leap ahead compared to the Z2. Initial observations: fan is SUPER quiet, much quieter than my Z2. Z2000 is BIG dimensionally, I had to raise my ceiling mount to prevent head collision. Also, the Z2000 does not have a digital keystone adjustment, but the lense shift was enough to deal with it.
Summary: Personal Experience I've owned Sharp DT-500 for 2 years 1300 plus hours it's an awesome projector, for watching HD on cable or Blu-ray the surprising factor it blows away the Z2000 on watching HD on cable by leaps and bounds. If your only going to watch Blu-ray or HD-DVD movies then get the Z2000 but if you plan to watch HD on cable than this is not for you. I was expecting to be blown away by the Z2000 but I wasn't. Better than my Sharp Dt-500 how?
